Ride Sicily is an association formed by equestrian tourism enthusiasts, which organises excursions and trail rides throughout Sicily. Ride Sicily's main riding bases are located in the territory of Castiglione di Sicilia - the area is arguably the best starting point for horse riding expeditions on the island, thanks to its incredible natural diversity and its excellent strategic position, in the middle of the Alcantara Valley, between the Peloritan and Nebrodi Mountains, and Mount Etna.
Trails include the following:
- Transfers to and from the airport (own flights)
- All meals and drinks
- All overnight stays in high-quality accommodation (shared room, single room supplement EUR 250)
- Rental of a horse for the trail, with a choice of an English or a Western saddle
All guides are expert horsemen and are extremely knowledgeable about all of the areas you will ride in during the trail.
Guests are with the horses all the time, as horses stay throughout the trail and spend each night at the same accommodation as guests. This means that our guests never have to use any other means of transport throughout the trail, even for short distances.
Minimum number of participants: 4. For all week-long trails with fewer than 4 participants a 15% supplement will be charged one month before the trail date.
